The “Countdown” to Beyonce‘s interview on “Oprah’s Next Chapter” has come and gone and while we may not have learned a ton of new things about King Bey, we appreciate the lessons we were able to take away from the “Crazy In Love” singer.

MUST READ: The ‘Awww’ Heard ‘Round The World: Beyonce Finally Reveals Blue Ivy

It’s hard to hate Beyonce when she is the epitome of a woman who seemingly “has it all.” And when you even question if her life isn’t as glamorous as it seems, the kid inside of you, doesn’t want it not to be. But, even Beyonce isn’t perfect and that’s what she wants us to realize. Just like every other woman striving to be successful in this matrix of life, she struggles with time management, talks to herself, curses and finds herself working on her days off.

“My daughter introduced me to myself,” said Beyonce. She described Blue Ivy as “hilarious and she is fire,” and considers her to be her best friend. That may not be the best bit of motherly advice–most moms will tell you to be a mother first and don’t try to be your child’s friend– it is an indicator of imperfection. Something Beyonce has tried to hide until now. Bey had a drink with her mother Tina Knowles for the first time in her life after the Super Bowl. If that is true it’s another sign that Bey’s relationship with her parents isn’t as glamorous as her shiny career. “I needed my father,” she said about her breakup with Matthew Knowles. “I had to tell myself, at some point, you have to be the adult that your father has raised and prepared you to be.”

Oprah deemed Bey the “Beloved Mistress of the Universe.” Whatever that means–not really sure–but yes, our infatuation for Beyonce has managed to grow.

“When I wake up in the morning, the best thing in the world is seeing her face,” the pop star said earlier this month.

“She’s starting to talk. It’s just such a beautiful time in my life to have a child and every day see something new and see her learn something new.”

This marks the second time fans are getting a good look at Blue Ivy. One year ago, when Blue Ivy was just 4-weeks-old, her famous parents shared photos of their precious new arrival.
